What is a Poker Cruise?

Meet on the lake at the Lake Sunapee Cruising Fleet Committee Boat between 1:00pm and 2:00pm just outside the entrance to Sunapee Harbor. It is a pontoon boat that will be adorned with balloons. At the Committee Boat, each sailboat will be given instructions, a course map, and a playing card. Sail to four points on the upper end of the lake. At each point, there will be a power boat displaying balloons where you will receive another playing card. Bring your “poker hand” and wear your crew costumes to the Reception and win prizes.


A Reception will be held from 4:00pm until 5:00pm at the LSPA (Lake Sunapee Protective Association) Knowlton House in Sunapee Harbor. Food and refreshments will be served and prizes will be given out for the best poker hands and the best themed crew costumes worn by skipper and crew.
